The Pro Experience Charlotte 2019- Recap & Photos!

We headed to North Carolina for our first The Knot + WeddingWire education event of the year. The Pro Experience Charlotte was everything and more! We are so thankful that The Ballantyne Charlotte hosted our full day of education, networking and endless inspiration.

It was amazing to see around 200 wedding professionals ready to learn and take their business to the next level this year! Together we learned how to master the client experience, tips for surprise and delight moments, closing the sale, marketing beyond inclusivity and ways to improve our social media strategy! Attendees left ready to put what they learned into action. 

Erin of Erin Padgett Events teamed up with Kaleigh of Méldeen to create so many spring inspired details for the day. Together their design came to life through dusty rose signage (Méldeen), a giant balloon arch (Erin Padgett Events ), velvet classroom and lounge seating (AFR Furniture Rental) and stunning linens ( Nuage Designs). We're talking jewel tones everywhere (YAY!). A few more of our favorites from the day included:
